But Shumlin also noted the "need divide" between rural and urban America
in terms of the gun issue and said that a total assault weapons ban
would need to determine how an assault weapon is defined. Many automatic
weapons would not be used for hunting and could be banned, he
continued, including the kind used in the Newtown school shooting in
Connecticut, which he called a "weapon of war." But at the same time, he
said that the definition of an assault weapon would need to address
certain rifles used by hunters in his state and other rural areas around
There are NO automatic weapons covered by the assault weapons ban. Those were heavily regulated in 1934 and banned in 1986. The assault weapons ban covers semiautomatic firearms only.
They keep pushing this confusion deliberately. They are lying to the American people.
